 I just came across an interesting observation: According to the tool
 Exodus, Orfox (Tor browser for Android) contains 4 trackers:

 - Adjust
 - Google Ads
 - Google DoubleClick
 - Google Firebase Analytics


 Confirm where these are and why they aren't excluded at compile-time. Is
 it worth adding additional built-time logic for excluding this code? Is
 there more we should do? etc.
